Agerich’s performances have always been full of electrifying energy. Seeming rather bashful at first, she displays an almost predatory musicality as soon as she takes charge of the keys and has lost none of her magic to this day. Powerful, accomplished, brilliant, unbridled, obstinate and at the same time vulnerable and full of depth and poetry are the performances of the “lioness at the piano”.
